Subject: never really liked donna, but...
she does an amazing job on "From the heart of Me." Reminds me of Maria Muldaur when she was part of Jim Kweskin's Jug Band back in the mid-late '60s, with her husband at the time Geoff Muldaur, or even when she went solo with "Midnight at the Oasis."

This is one time I give her top honors, which I find usual for me. I really stopped listening to the Dead after Pig died, basically after "American Beauty," although I'd buy their stuff hoping they'd recapture their early charm, but disillusioned each time.

Like most bands back in those days, everybody kept putting out one shitty album after another, from the Stones to the Airplane (and especially their offshoot Starship) to Zeppelin until basically like Elvis before them they all became a caricature of themselves.

This will probably piss some royal deadheads off but that's how I see it. I remember them when they were the DEAD not just some country rock band like the Eagles or Poco or Flyin' Burrito Brothers making some bullshit records like Shakedown Street. But it seems like that's what the fans wanted, so that's what the dead gave them. They were never more popular than they were at that time. The only time they reverted to the DEAD was in moments like Drums and Space and Jams leading into "The Other One" or some other old song.

This is not a down-the-dead review. It's just an observation from one fan who remembers them back in the day when all the bands were not only good - like Tony the Tiger says, "They're Great!!!"

Like I mentioned, all the bands went that route, from the Beatles (especially solo) to the Stones (basically everything after "Exile on Main Street) and any other band you want to throw into the mix. They all lost something as the decade switched into the '70s and the freakout became country rock or folk ballads or, god forbid, disco.

And I'm not talking about folk music like early Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Baez, or even early Peter, Paul and Mary, when folk music was folk music, not the bullshit that it became in the '70s with the likes of Jim Croce or Don McLean.

Like Elvis in the '50s who turned the world upside down, the bands of the '60s became like Elvis in the '70s - bullshit.

But this song by Donna, who to me was instrumental in bringing about the death of the dead, shines a little bit brightly on this song.

Maybe I'm just getting old, but for this song alone, I'll give this tape three stars.

Subject: memorable show
I was at this show, 4th row, and have listened to it hundreds of times. It contains some of the sweetest playing around. The Peggy-O is one of my all time favorites. The jam in Music Never Stopped is also tremendous, really precise jamming. The transition from Miracle into Bertha is the tastiest on record, and the tease of Morning Dew just before Shakedown is worth listening for.

Subject: keeps getting better
as it goes...nobody really shines but everybody seems right on tonight...only minor negatives: vocals tend to get lost sometimes, and maybe it's me but everything seems either a little too draggy or just a little too speedy in the 1st half...but by the time they get to "eyes" (one of the best i've heard) they're as good as ever...sound quality gets better too, for an aud it's near-perfect by the time they get to "shakedown". Not gonna blow you away but by no means disappointing...

Subject: Very nice show from underrated year
The Fox was always a great place to see shows, an old style, historic movie theater with a balcony (it was the theater that showed the premiere of Gone With The Wind in the 30's). The ceiling has clouds [painted on it and little lights that twinkle like stars.

This show was very strong. First set has a ver good Jack Straw, a great Passenger (I never understood why this was retired after '81) and a very nice BE Women > Music Never Stopped. The second set is epic, 7 songs before the drums with a nice Ramble On Rose, a classic Prophet > Eyes and a great Shakedown out of Drums and Olin Arageed space.

Subject: From the heart of us
We must appreciate all the pristine sounds of tapes made by diligent and determined individuals, and show our love for the simple fact that we can download at all. Respect is due this to the one who taped this show! I love the distinct high frequencies and crisp cymbals! This is one of the best sounding audience recordings on the archive. Personally I love all the tunes in this concert. 1978 is one of the most underrated years, Jerry is usually on fire and is here especially during the Estimated>Eyes. Download at your pleasure.

Subject: Overlooked Show
Real nice Audience source for a very strong show. The first set is fairly routine, but the second set really stands out. A great Prophet>eyes, and one of the standout Eearly Shakedowns after Drums.
